This used to be my go to beer since it's brewed here in Colorado. I still like it and it's a good beer to kick back and relax to and kick one or two back. Beer pours out a copper red with some head not much lacing. Good smell but nothing special. Taste like a red ale even though it's a lager beer still does have smooth taste. Great beer made by Coors.

This is an average red ale, it pours an off white head and leaves some lancing on the glass.

Clean, smooth, full body, nice flavors in and easy drinking beer. Good price usually. Not for the Hop obsessed, however.

When I am wanting to keep the abv down a bit from my go-to Lagunitas Sucks, this is one of my top options. Pre-craft explosion, this was probably my favorite beer. Great beer for what it is.

This used to be a big deal back in the day before all the serious competition from the micro/craft breweries. Not so, any more to me....flavor is a little bland.
